    That does look amazing, but how much did it cost?
  • Looks good. Have you thought about mounting the reverb button under the bar on the other side to protect it?
  • Where's the fun in that!! Stunning looking bike. Bet you're chuffed to bit with it and I give you two rides before you start fettling....again!! 2x10? 1x11? Enjoy.

    Yes, the forks are going to TF Tuning on Monday for the elite Push tuning. I found the forks v v linear in their travel which made for some decidedly hairy moments when you least want it.

    I'm planning on getting the Float X ctd rear to match as its much more suited to the bike and my riding. I thought about the Cane Creek but the simplicity of the Fox won me over.

    I'm also waiting for Hope to release their N/W chainring and wide range cassette converter.... then it'll be 1x10 and I can swap the reverb remote to a less exposed position under the left thumb

    Less than it should have but more than I've ever spent on one thing (weddings, houses and most cars excepted)

    Don't bother, I've got one and dropped the chain on the first ride... (And yes, my clutch was on).

    Oh, that's a bit of an censored . Have you had any more dropped chains? Still looking to go 1x10, would prefer to buy british
  • Newly Push tuned Fox float 34's First ride last Sunday and first impressions are that they are a significant improvement on the 2013 Fox CTD's. No more diving through the travel at every opportunity. Only went to cannock, but didnt use full travel, which is what I would expect, unlike the untuned version which would blow through the whole lot on the first sections of the Monkey trail. Which, if you know it, is not exactly the most extreme terrain, and certainly not gnar enough to use that much travel.
